My Mother Thinks I’m a Great Artist

When you were a kid…
what inspired you to make art?
was it encouraged and nurtured?
was it as natural as breathing?

Twenty established local artists explore the history of their own creative development. Each artist is presenting their childhood artwork and responding to it through words and art…reflecting on their own past and process, and how it relates to their contemporary work.

This exhibit illuminates the importance of art education and supporting creative practice for all kids. Especially in a time when the arts are desperately under-supported, we celebrate the importance of art.

Color! MEMBERS’ EXHIBITION 2017

June 7 – July 23, 2017
Reception: June 18, 2- 4 pm

Artists choose colors to produce a certain mood or atmosphere; to create space, light and shadow; or to introduce symbolic associations. Colors can affect the composition of a piece of art and describe a scene in new and creative ways. In art, color allows the creation of individuality and flare. Color can be used to evoke a certain mood or to create a message or evoke a response in the viewer. Artists use the positive or negative attributes of color in their works to subliminally send a message. Click here to tour the exhibit.

Curators:
Arlene Gotshalk, Jane Gregorius, Ann Miya, Mary Neater, Carol Walberg, Teresa Zolar.
